I hardly ever laugh when watching shows, but it doesn't mean it isn't funny. It was pretty meh but it was the season opener, it will get better.

You guys are ridiculous. You make it sound like you sat through church or something. It wasn't the greatest episode, and the best has passed us... But it had many laughs, and was most certainly worth watching if you have been a fan and watched the show for years already.

I had no idea the premiere was last night until I saw this thread, I don't watch too much NBC but I felt like they didn't advertise for it too much, mostly focused on their new shows debuting.

Couldn't agree more. And I've been hard on this show over the past 3 years. I've learned to lower my expectations and just enjoy it. Also, it's real difficult getting into the story arcs with the way NBC schedules their shows. We'll get 6 eps then go on a break or something.

Yeah, I wouldn't have known if I wasn't subscribed to Parks & Rec on Facebook. In fairness, that strategy has been pretty sound--Go On has had pretty good ratings so far. Thursday night is turning into a ratings cesspool for NBC. Which is good news for us Community fans, since it could mean a second life for the show.

I thought it was a decent episode. Pretty standard fare for the post-Michael era.

I think it was the second episode of that, that my fiance had me watch... and my ****ing God, just awful. Although I hate Matthew Perry, so that might be why I didn't like it.

I don't know what else he's been in (outside of that small part in Superbad) but Clark and Michael was absolutely hilarious.

Go On is an effin great show. Best feel good comedy in a while other than maybe Raising Hope. It doesn't have to rely on toilet humour either. Matthew Perry is still better as a support character but they did a great job at that show.

Pretty average episode, but I've basically been sticking around to watch the show just to see how it ends.

I think the writers know Nellie is hated. That's why they were having garbage thrown at her.

Hated Nellie last season, but if Andy is going to make her life hell, she might be tolerable this season. I didn't think she was that bad in the first episode for this season, but she really didn't have a big role like she did at times last year.

Guess we can see where the season is going, with Dwight's spin off and Pam/Jim hinting at finally being able to move on from Dunder Mifflin...

I guess that's the point though, isn't it? You feel strongly about her, it's just not a positive feeling. The former is the intent, not necessarily the latter.

Yeah...I wouldn't be holding my breath on that

NBC Thursday was dead WITH Community and that show will finally die on Friday night.

A declining Office has been the only show that has held up that night the past few years. While shows like Parks and Rec get good pub here, it still draws flies and is better suited for cable.

As for this episode, I didn't mind it and thought it was better than most of what I've seen from last season. Of course, I've lowered my expectations for this show drastically.

Mildly amusing episode, at BEST.

The Oscar and Jim storylines have potential, but we'll see.

It's such a shame that people watch this instead of Parks and Rec (generally as per the ratings, I mean, not people on HF).
